Patrice Bergeron scored just over 14 minutes into the game and added spectacular shorthander in the second while Tim Thomas turned away all 37 shots as the Bruins blanked the Canucks, 4-0, in Game 7 at Rogers Arena to capture their first Stanley Cup since 1972. In winning the sixth Stanley Cup in franchise history, they become the first team ever to win three Game 7s in one playoff season. Brad Marchand also scored twice for the Bruins, including an empty-netter to seal the game with 2:44 remaining. 

Former NHL player and current Vancouver sports radio host Ray Ferraro joined Mut & Merloni Wednesday to preview Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals and give some perspective from the Canucks fan base.

Ferraro said that despite another Boston blowout in Game 6, Vancouver fans aren't too worried about their chances Wednesday.

VANCOUVER -- Canucks alternate captain Daniel Sedin spoke Wednesday at Rogers Arena, a day after word emerged that he guaranteed victory in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals, something he did not do.

The Canucks forward wasn't pleased with the idea that he guaranteed victory, and said Wednesday that expressing confidence at home is different from providing a guarantee.

Blackhawks goalie Marty Turco joined the Mut & Merloni show Wednesday to talk about the Stanley Cup finals Game 7.

Turco has been a guest analyst for NHL Network since his team was eliminated by the Canucks in the opening round. Chicago, the defending Stanley Cup champion, fell behind 3-0 in the series before rallying to force a Game 7 that Vancouver won 2-1.

Turco made it clear that he doesn't like the Canucks' brash style.

VANCOUVER -- It wasn't immediately clear whether Nathan Horton would be well enough to endure a coast-to-coast flight, but the concussed Bruins forward did indeed make the trip to Vancouver to watch his team play Wednesday's Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals.

"He certainly wanted to be here. We wanted him on this trip," coach Claude Julien said Tuesday at Rogers Arena. "As you know, when you get this far, you're a pretty close-knit  group. Our guys wanted everybody here and they've got it." 

A spokesperson from TD Garden confirmed to WEEI that there will be no viewing party at the building for Wednesday night's Game 7 between the Bruins and Canucks in the Stanley Cup finals.
